The exclusive UK distributor of the LogiKal software programme provided trial versions of the software for use with Tufacade in just one week and delivered a fully operational software solution in just six weeks.

Business Micros Aluminium played a pivotal role in how Unique Window Systems has deployed its new Tufacade aluminium curtain walling system into the commercial market.

Unique Window Systems’ Joint Managing Director Sunil Patel said that the technical expertise and service from Business Micros Aluminium throughout the development process was exceptional.

Unique Window Systems originally developed the Tufacade system during 2008 to broaden the range of façade and curtain walling solutions it could offer to commercial specifiers.

The Leicester based company already manufactured in the Kawneer, Seniors Architectural Systems and Schüco aluminium systems but wanted to offer its own specialist solution alongside these.

Initially, all off the design, cutting, estimating and thermal calculations for Tufacade were carried out manually but, since Unique Window Systems was already using LogiKal software for the rest of its fabrication, it made sense to automate Tufacade production in the same way.

“We were impressed with the skills shown by the programming team and by how promptly and efficiently they delivered a dedicated version of LogiKal which precisely met our needs. The whole process was carried out remotely and was completely hassle free. “In my opinion, LogiKal is now the default software programme for aluminium fabricators in the UK so, added to the fact that all our employees had been extensively trained in the programme, it was the natural choice for Tufacade. It has already made a considerable impact in improving our production efficiencies on the new system and it now means we can switch seamlessly between all our systems offering customers an even better service.”

Offering a logical and dynamic processing experience, LogiKal is the most widespread aluminium software application in the UK with over 20 aluminium profile databases available including Aluprof, Blyweert Beaufort, Bowater Architectural, Gutmann, Hueck, Ikon, Jack Aluminium, Kaye Aluminium, Metal Technology, Reynaers, SAPA, Schüco, Seniors, Smarts, Technal and Universal.

Business Micros Aluminium, based in Tewkesbury, is the exclusive UK distributor for LogiKal and supports fabricators using the software with dedicated expertise direct from the aluminium sector. Key members of the team have extensive industry experience and the company employs its own in-house programmers so that all the necessary database programming for customers like Unique Window Systems can be carried out in the UK to offer a fast and flexible service.

Business Micros Aluminium offers new customers rental as well as purchase options for LogiKal which means they can enjoy all the benefits which the software offers including regular updates and support without any significant upfront investment.
